im looking for a tube amp for under $800 new... i want to be able to play heavy stuff such as metallica on this amp but i would like for it to have good cleans too. right now im thinking about gettin a fender blues deluxe reissue nd getting a good overdrive pedal but i would like something a little more heavy sounding then a fender amp... please list some amps that would be good. or if the fender would be good enough

Id say that with an excellent OD, it would be good. Its a class a/b i think, so itll sound different cranked i think. A Laney would work, maybe a Peavey Classic 30. I would say something like a 5150, but its a big sacrifice clean-wise.

Look into Mesa amps.

Check Tom Sholtz's web site and see what he used. It may be discouraging. Not sure it can be done without a lot of expensive gear.
